Hendricks County Rib-Fest and Balloon Glow

1900 E. Main Street
Danville, IN 46122

​The Hendricks County Rib Fest and Balloon Glow is a local tradition since 2005 for the whole family, which features live entertainment, games for kids, lots of food, hot air balloons and fireworks!  Local restaurants compete for “Best Ribs” and “Best Sauce” bragging rights as judged by local celebrities.  Attendance for the Rib Fest is 12,000 and growing.  On top of all that, we have the 5k Rib Run in the morning and Balloon Glow to add to the excitement planned for the evening.
